Here’s a bit of sketchwork–or rather, stitchwork–for an upcoming suite of videos involving semi-trucks. We love them. We love the way they look. We love the highways they move down. We love the cargo they carry. Look out for more big rig material from GOATSILK in the very near future.

Loved this concept and its amazing layers – – the huge, mechanical, and macho trucks (yet the first one is still ‘pretty’, so it gives you a clue to what’s coming) paired with this ultra homey, warm, fuzzy, uber-feminine(i.e., grandmotherly) concept of the quilt, and that contrast is brought to the fore by the fact that it’s a ‘digital’ quilt and not something out of cloth, which would never work. and then a quilt that can show the motion, in all those different directions, really just brilliant guys, bravo!!!!
